I Listen up and I’ll tell you a truth shall I about crazy hysteria and a convenient lie. About how the hellish Australian fires are blamed on “climate change” deniers - to convince you of global warming and that the climate is transforming. About the zealot Church of Climatology who follow their doomsday cult ideology and bow to a brainwashed little girl who preaches the end of the world. But what they don’t tell you are the facts for fear of condemnation it attracts. II Listen up and I’ll tell you a truth shall I that Australia has always been wet and dry. This land of fire, drought and flooding rain burns and cracks and floods again and again - thus these fires are not “unprecedented” such as the bias media misrepresented. They shout the mantra of “climate change” but the facts like themselves they derange. The fires they blame on hotter days but not the arsonists who set them ablaze, and not the highly combustible eucalypt trees that burn faster and hotter by degrees. III Listen up and I’ll tell you a truth shall I about how when fools play wise people die! And how eco-fascist environmental laws are the reason the wild bushfire roars - how the huge forest fuel load uncleared fed the fires like true nature lovers feared. The media cry “man-made” destruction instead of incompetent hazard reduction. The drought they blame on oil, gas and coal but not a cooling Indian Ocean dipole, and now that summer torrential rains fall that too is climate change they bawl. IV First we had the fearmongering Al Gore who in his crusade got richer and richer more. They said “mass starvation, crops will fail” yet we grow on an unprecedented scale - how more extreme weather events are due when the data shows the opposite is true. They crowed the Maldives would disappear but guess what, 30 years on they’re still there! They said Tuvalu is sinking as sea levels rise but satellite mapping showed it gained in size, and now they bow and pray to Greta who prophesies death and shouts “how dare you!”. V Add Attenborough, another crackpot halfwit says polar beers are dying out, that’s bullish-it! Prince Charles, Harry and Meghan spoke but they are the princes and princess of woke. Hollywood too, those dumb smug elites in their private jets full of their own conceits. Now they speak of an existential threat and scare our kids into a doomsday mindset - that civilisation will end in their lifetime and that to me is an unforgivable crime. Australia! Your ash and dust is in my veins, this land of fire, drought and flooding rains. Written: February 2020
